Find some southern comfort at Grassroots on January 22, on what might be one of our most favorite foodie holidays to date, National Southern Food Day. Southern food lovers can always get their fill of down-south eats at our restaurants, but we thought that we’d share five of our personal favorites to enjoy.

Shrimp Po’ Boy
Dressed all the way and tucked in a French baguette, this po’ boy doesn’t lack rich flavor. Chef’s Shrimp Po’ Boy is served with his iconic Nola remoulade and is an obvious pick for National Southern Food Day.

Southern Shrimp and Grits
A true southern classic, Chef Collins combines Gulf white shrimp, Tasso ham, which is a specialty of Louisiana cuisine, jalapeno cheddar grits and hearty slices of focaccia to complete this full-flavored shrimp and grits dish.

Carolina Baby Backs
Bring your appetites, southern food lovers, you might need a to-go box for this one. Slow-smoked with a thin bbq sauce and grilled to finish, Chef Collins’ Carolina Baby Backs are worthy of writing back home to Carolina about.

Louisiana Red Beans and Rice
Our soup of the day menu perfectly coincides with National Southern Food Day, which is happening on a Monday this year. Each Monday diners can savor Chef Collins’ Louisiana Red Beans and Rice soup, available in a bowl or a cup.

Housemade Smoked Salmon
Salmon gets a southern makeover with this sharing plate. Chef Collins smokes his salmon with cherry and applewood flavors to make this tastebud-pleasing appetizer. The shareable app is finished with Collins’ signature Nola remoulade and toast points.
